Brendan Haywood, Stephon Marbury and the G Word
Brendan Haywood's comments about Stephon Marbury have gotten a fair bit of attention this afternoon. There's one objectionable line. The rest of it seems fairly accurate. Here's Haywood, on Marbury's Internet conquests.
"At first it was cool, but after a while it just became disturbing.
He's on YouTube crying with no shirt on for no reason, sweating while his boy's rubbing his shoulders. What's that about?
That's like gay porn.
Objection, irrelevant to the argument. Sustained.
"I don't understand it. He's dancing to a song called 'Barbie Doll', doing like stripper moves.
I have no idea what's going on with the guy, it's almost like he's trying to end his own career.
There's not a GM out there that would touch Marbury right now...
Have you seen the 'Barbie Doll' clip? Click on YouTube and go to Barbie Doll.
There's no way any other professional athletes would wanna get dressed around this guy, because you gotta think something is a little, he's swinging from both sides of the fence."
Whoa whoa whoa. Nope, no good.
Say he's different, say he's sabotaging his career, say he's full of strange surprises. Say, "Jeez, those jeans are pretty tight." Hell, say "I think he might be gay," if that really matters to you. But to say no other professional athlete would want to get dressed around this guy.....well, when a high-profile pro athlete finally comes out, what then? Are we going to create separate dressing areas? Don't ask don't tell rules? Blinders for those people to shield their eyes from the temptatious bodies of their teammates? Next time, just stop at "What's that about?" and move on to talking about the Wizards.
